    The rabble-rousing skin condition can be conventionally treated, but due to some demerits, there is a need to find a novel approach with an appropriate release profile. The research work narrates the optimization of the topical delivery system of Fluocinolone acetonide loaded in pluronic lecithin organogel. The preliminary studies were carried out and, the ternary phase diagram was established by Chemix school version 3.60. The formulation was optimized by taking a different concentration of polymers as independent and viscosity and drug release (6 h) as dependent variables by applying 32 full factorial design. The optimized batch was further compared with marketed preparation and also kept for the stability study. The release profile of the optimized batch exhibited a sustained release of up to 6 h (77.00%). It gave ex vivo drug release up to 6 h (90.64%) which is more prolonged than marketed preparation and, cutaneous disposition was found to be higher. Besides, the texture analysis was compared to that of the marketed formulation of the drug. However, the proof of the effectiveness of the formulated pluronic lecithin organogel will require further in vivo study for future aspects. In a nutshell, the proposed formulation of fluocinolone acetonide is the simplest and promising dosage form for the treatment of psoriasis.
